Do you have a favorite podcast you enjoy?
I listen to many different podcasts on rotation, but I always return to The Minimalists (though I’m certainly not a minimalist), Mel Robbins, Choose FI, and Women of Impact.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love DIY home projects! I have done everything from painting to electrical, flooring, tiling, and more.
What was the first car you ever drove?
My first car was a 1992 Jeep Cherokee. It was extremely slow, had a manual transmission, a maroon interior, and a loose front seat that tipped over a little every time I turned right.
